More School Basics

Crate Teacher Ensemble

A set of cards using School Basics (available at i {heart} papers.com starting August 14). This time I paired the images with the cutest new school themed paper from Crate. Their new line, School Spirit, will be shipping soon. And I am way beyond excited to say that Crate will be selling 6x6 paper pads!! These will not be scaled down, but 1/4 sheet versions of their paper. But you can see how easily I worked those into these cards. Love the colors!

A look at how the words fit perfectly on the handwriting line stamp.

Crate Teacher CU 2

My favorite feature of this stamp set:

The handwriting line stamp measures 5.55”, which means that you will be able to stamp the line the entire side of an A2 card, the long side!!!!

Crate Teacher CU 3

A paper pieced star.

Crate Teacher CU 4

A paper pieced apple, leaf, and star. So cute! Leaves the possibilities wide open for your creativity!

Supplies: Stamps-Mint Motif (School Basics available August 14), Ink-Palette (Burnt Umber, Water Lily, L’Amour) Versamark (Watermark), Patterned paper-Crate (School Spirit-will let you know when it arrives)
